I'm after a Brush Cutter to cut our empty section as the grass has overgrown to knee height and waist height around the sides. Can anyone recommend me a make and model or any good specials? Looking to spend $300 or under. What brands to stay away from?

Wow, is that really a laptop for 2000 bucks, that is considered a bargin?

That's crazy. How much does it normally rip you off, I mean cost? 


It's 500 off. Plenty of non-apple laptops go for a similar price.

The 15" MBP starts at 3699$ :(

Edit: Have a look here. http://www.apple.com/nz/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro :)

There have been some unhappy customers still waiting for their products and also not getting much help from DSE about the status of the order lately. I thought of buying at that price however reading this forum and what some people have experienced I decided not to.

Very disappointing sales this year. Jbhifi this year need you to go into the store for the better deals, where last year they were also online. Not sure if they are limited quantity though as they don't appear to mention that.

I had to really out the pressure on for them to fulfill my order after waiting nearly 3 weeks. No explanation for the delay. It is all done offshore, they don't use NZ staff for their online operations, so communicating with them isn't easy. There online store is advertising things that they can't seem to provide, just seem to be major problems.

With Boxing Day sales getting worse each year for the past few (every one since the Harvey Norman netbook year to be exact) I am not entirely sure why people would expect anything but disappointment this year especially with the dollar decline since last Boxing Day. Sure we could have been surprised but it was always going to be unlikely.

One of our customers bought one of these and got it shipped directly to our store so we could do the data transfer from their failed MacBook Pro.
It arrived within a few days of them ordering it online.
To have them at that price I'd say dse had stock at the old rrp, before Apple increased them, and decided to sell them at cost.
